'pride' by Patrick for Gigantic festivalOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

We met 15 years ago through freelance work  on projects for Same Sky, a Celebratory Arts Company based in Brighton, England (we still work on projects for them now). We decided  to share a making space together, as a mutual support network, to pool resources, to swap ideas and tools and to motivate each other. We are multi skilled makers who enjoy collaboration and continue to seek professional development

100w seeks work for the independent artists in the group and larger work that involves collaboration.

After a collective 50 plus years working in the arts we can also call on a large pool of specialists if needed to assist/ add to larger projects

We are interested in making all sorts of things ..get in contact if you need something.

OUR HOUSE (the incandescent bulb and beyond)


OUR HOUSE (the incandescent bulb and beyond)

Part of the Open House Trail for Brighton Festival 2009

OUR HOUSE was a  thought provoking and topical concept based exhibition, exploring the form and role of the incandescent light bulb through a range of media.

In the spirit of its host, Same Sky, 100w requested community inclusion -a  tenement building was  erected. 6 tenants in their ‘rented’ room explored the theme of the INCANDESCENT LIGHT BULB 

While surrounding the ‘tenement’ the four artists that are 100w explored the light bulb in more detail. They created 3d and 2d work using a variety of materials and techniques
